ICT needs to be done first because if ICT is positive than anti D has no role. If ICT is negative than Anti D can be given. For swelling, see her BPs, urinary protein (24 hours sample), lipids...If BP s are normal than check for casts in urine,0 complement levels. Keep watch on BPs, fall in Hb. Check for ICT first. If ICT is positive than Dont administer anti D. See for hydropic changes in placenta and fetus. MCA PSV of fetus. Keep monitoring . Explain the condition to couple. Give steroids at 32 weeks.

I agree
